EUROPEAN FILM ACADEMY INTRODUCES AWARDS FOR PRODUCTION DESIGN AND EDITING

This year's 23rd European Film Awards will see the re-launch of two award categories: EUROPEAN PRODUCTION DESIGNER and EUROPEAN EDITOR.

The move has been decided by the Board of the European Film Academy during
their latest meeting in Berlin and reflects the distinct wish by EFA
Members to honour the outstanding contribution of production designers and
editors to European film culture.

The two awards replace the Prix d'Excellence which honoured achievements
in the different film crafts. The recipients will be elected by the more
than 2,000 members of the European Film Academy. They will vote from a
list of three nominations in each of these categories, chosen from the
selection list of around 40 recommended films.

The European Film Awards 2010 will be celebrated in Tallinn, Estonia, on 4
December.
